With two linemen added to the roster, it was a sign that center Max Garcia was not going to be able to play. Garcia was ruled out and deactivated for the game because of an Achilles injury, which put Sean Harlow in the starting lineup.
Isidora’s elevation was a COVID-19 replacement. Defensive tackle Corey Peters is still on the COVID list.
They also elevated linebacker Joe Walker and defensive lineman Josh Mauro as standard elevations.
